Tested by mum Ciara Shortt for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

My son loved this bike. After he had tested it we put him on his bike without stabilizers and he rode his bike no problem. The strider increased his confidence in trying to learn to ride. The bike attracted a lot of attention.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

My son learnt to ride a bike with no problem as a result of this.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Perhaps put brakes on it as it can go very very fast.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow dad?

I would definitely recommend this bike to friends. I loved the fact that it was so light and easy to carry around. The kids really enjoyed riding it as it was so easy to manoeuvre and they were whizzing around in no time having not spent much time on a balance bike before. The kids had a lot of fun riding round on this.

How does this product make your life easier as a dad?

It was really worth having two saddles that came with the bike and it was easy to swap them over. The fact that it was light meant that the kids are able to carry and push the bike around themselves, so that I don't have to carry it for them. It's also dead easy to just put in the back of the car whenever we wanted to take it to the park.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I'm sure it has been thought about already as the design is spot on, but a back brake would be a good addition. There were times when they got a lot of speed up and nearly crashed into other people, or trees, so had to really swerve to avoid them or fall off. But otherwise this bike was great and would definitely buy one.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow dad?

Comes with 2 seats and is very easy to adjust a seat and handlebars to the correct height of your child. Compared to the wooden balance bikes this had a far superior turning circle and looked much more comfortable to ride.

Maybe add a back brake... It’s a good idea to get kids used to how brakes work before they move up to the next level of bikes.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Lightweight and easy to handle, and well worth the money as it will last for many years. My son loves using this bike and although he is quite petite he can push this around easily and just lift it to turn corners. He is learning how to handle this more each day and is growing more confident. Great customer service and easy to assemble and adjust the height of the seat and handlebars.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

He is learning to be more independent, he loves spending time on his bike and amuses himself so it gives me small pockets of "freedom"!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I'm happy with the product, I think that’s a good buy at £60.

Tested by Wah Ching Ho for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

I think the design proportion is good. The frame is lightweight and easy for my toddler to use and move confidently on.

How does this product make your life easier as a parent?

He is very happy on it and learning to balance really well as it's not very heavy.
